As I reached half draw he looked ahead and started walking, and I kept drawing. He stopped and looked right at me with a softball sized pine running up in front of foreleg and neck and another pine the same size splitting his body in half. This left a nice window to split and center the vitals. My 70# MOAB sent the arrow right between the pines and into the buck, and man did he bottle rocket out of there!!!! Back across the dim road he sounded like a horse as he disappeared into the pines, and I could hear him even after I lost site of him. It sounded as if he veered right a bit....then silence.

That's when it dawned on me. This was not a little buck, but one that was full grown. I just realized how big his body looked in my mind when he was standing there. He had a broad squared off body and a very unique rack....more so than I thought.

Like when I walked up on 'Bride of Horse Tail'(when I killed a big fat 300#+ sow like Curt Cabrera), I immediately thought of Curt again. Curt had killed a nice racked freak buck in TX, and once again I had followed along Curt's path. I now had a freak buck of my own.

What also made this so special is I had never hunted this area before, and only hunted the one spot I felt in my gut was the right one. In less than just a few minutes it all happened, AND I was on the ground. More pics of this freak rack to follow.....

OK...now you've seen the field photo and the close ups of the rack....now, thanks to the pic the property owner got of the deer during the summer, you can see how the buck's body dwarfed the rack.

Here he is sporting his rusty summer coat.....

Great story. I wonder if he passed those genes on to his offspring?
